We would love you to join us for this exciting new event, and to help support women in our community who truly appreciate being seen and supported during, quite often, the most difficult and unsettling time in their lives.
About the Blue Mountains Women’s Health and Resource Centre
The Blue Mountains Women’s Health and Resource Centre (BMWHRC) is a community-based non-government organisation that provides evidence based interventions to address both physical and mental health needs, as well as the health impacts of domestic and family violence and sexual violence on women and children in the Blue Mountains.
The key components of the Women’s Health Program model provided to women in the Blue Mountains by BMWHRC include:
- Mental health and well-being services - individual and group counselling, and therapeutic resilience work, social and emotional well-being and psychosocial support
- Physical health and well-being services – chronic illness prevention and management, nutrition, complementary therapies and body work, reproductive and sexual health, cancer screening
- Integrated care and referral – support to address the social determinants of health and the health effects of domestic and family violence and sexual violence
- Health education and health promotion – to improve health literacy, promote healthy lifestyle choices and behaviours and equip women to participate in their own health care and well-being .
BMWHRC is a holistic and trauma informed women’s health centre that provides a range of a range of domestic violence related responses and prevention strategies embedded into their service delivery. BMWHRC has ensured this occurs in their service delivery because violence against women and children is a significant issue locally, nationally and globally.
BMWHRC innovates in violence prevention programs focussing on work with young people. The Centre also provides practical support for women such as showering and laundry facilities, as well as a study hub.
